Zoe Saldana is in high demand, and with features like hers, we aren’t a bit surprised the actress is working her second cover for the month of September.
Earlier in the week, the Dominican beauty donned the cover of Malibu Magazine with a black and white shoot that captured the actress in high fashion clothes.
Zoe has switched up the swag a bit in this shoot, styled in what could pass for office wear, if her office wasn’t a movie trailer!
The cover love is not coincidental. Zoe is gearing up for the release The Words, alongside her one time boo Bradley Cooper that hits the silver screen on September 7th.
Gotham Mag caught up with the beauty to talk fashion and what she is looking forward to in her life.
On her first memory of fashion:
“My grandmother and great grandmother were seamstresses their whole lives, so when my grandmother moved to New York in the ’60s, she worked for design houses throughout the city. She really loved fabrics and textiles, so it was natural to my family. Fashion wasn’t like a religion to us, but it is in my ancestry. It was never about luxury; it was about art.”
On the favorite piece of clothing she owns:
“There’s this Azzedine Alaia dress I have that makes me feel like I am collecting art. Collecting from certain designers is like collecting art and will always remain as memorable as the very first Chanel bag that I bought myself.”
On her contemporaries with a kindred sense of style:
“Sienna Miller, Julianne Moore, these kind of effortless beauties. Diane Kruger. I just love looking at their styles and feeling inspired by their choices.”
On what she’s looking forward to in the next year:
“Honestly, to continue growing in every aspect of my life because it’s been a long time since I’ve been this happy. I really want that to motivate me moving forward on every level.”
